Santiago Casilla in tears, unhappy at not being called in

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy used five different pitchers to unsuccessfully attempt to navigate the 9th inning against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday.

The One Way I’ll Second Guess Bruce Bochy

This probably has to be said up front; Bruce Bochy has historically done a masterful job of running his pitching staff in the postseason. It’s one of the main reasons — well, along Madison Bumgarner anyway — that he has three world series championships, and is almost certainly going into the Hall of Fame someday.

Bumgarner in Derby could raise money for charity

Madison Bumgarner is without question one the best power-hitting pitchers in the major leagues. So much so that the San Francisco Giants ace has expressed interest in competing in the Home Run Derby at the 2016 All-Star Game at San Diego’s Petco Park.
